Even though we don't have this screenshot I can give an educated guess.

The first setting you need to look for is titled something like SSID or Network Name. This is the name you create for your network identification. Learn all about these in our wireless names guide.

You may need to save your changes at this point and choose the option of Security in the sidebar.

The next setting that needs to be changed is the Authentication or Security Mode. We strongly recommend choosing the option of WPA2-PSK or WPS2-Personal. Find out why in this WEP vs. WPA guide. If you don't have the WPA2 option we strongly recommend that you update your firmware.

The last setting you need to change in order to have a strong secure network is the Internet password. This is usually called the Pre-Shared Key or Passphrase. Make sure you create a strong password here of at least 14 characters. Learn more in our Choosing a Strong Password guide.

That's it, nothing else needs to be changed. Simply click the Save button to apply these new changes.

Possible Problems when Changing your WiFi Settings

After making these changes to your router you will almost definitely have to reconnect any previously connected devices. This is usually done at the device itself and not at your computer.
